Firstly, many thanks to the team for getting the 1.4.2 update out. It mean't I could have my first game proper last night and it worked great. The only problem I had, which is one I had previously, is of latency issues. Now I know that it is probably more related to my connection than anything but I wonder how many other players experience high latency during a game?
The end result was having to re-sync twice during which my fleets were destroyed as well as the initial lag meaning I could not place all my units before Defcon 3. I was trying to place them but obviously couldn't place them until the game had caught up with the rest. On the plus side, it managed to pull the latency back a couple of times, something it hasn't done before and by the end of the game it was running fine.
What are your experiences?
